How To Use The Very Best Cosmetic Makeup Tips From The Pros To Improve Your Appearance

By Richard Ransome

If you spend any time hanging out backstage at fashion shows you will quickly learn some of the best cosmetic makeup tips from pros. Following are some great tricks that will make your makeup look like a professional did it.

Do not apply foundation all over your face. It looks unnatural and is unnecessarily aging. Instead, find one that truly matches your skin tone and just put it on in places where you need it. Anywhere that is red or blemished will qualify. Most people only need foundation on their t zone, which is your forehead, nose and chin. Putting it on your cheeks just interferes with any blush you might apply.

If you run out of blush, did you know you can use lipstick in place of it? Just put a tiny dot of lipstick on the apple of each cheek and blend in carefully. Most professional makeup artists do this all the time because it is a lot more natural looking than powder blush and blends better than cream blush. Of course, this is only true for natural looking lip colors. If you wear purple or black lipstick, do not try this at home.

Lots of makeup artists recommend eyeshadow primer to hide discoloration of the eyelids and help powdered shadow stay on. While this is a good idea in theory, you do not need to buy a special product just for that. Concealer or foundation in liquid form can do the exactly same thing.

Applying several layers of lip color will make it last longer. The bottom layer should be lip liner in a neutral color so if the lipstick does wear off it will not look unnatural. This substance has a sticky finish, so putting lipstick on top of it, blotting it, and then adding another layer will make your lip color stay in place for hours.

Silver or white eyeliner can be used to visually extend your eyes if you use it on the inner lower lid. This look can make your eyes look big, bright and clear and no one will know how you did it. In contrast, black eyeliner on the inner lids looks terrible, giving the eyes a tiny, mean appearance.

Want to make your own homemade lip gloss? Get the tiny pots and mix a little bit of left over lipstick or blush in with petroleum jelly and then repackage the mixture in the pots. In this way you can create a truly flattering lip color that you will not see on anyone else. It also makes the money you spend on lipstick or blush last longer.

If you wear foundation daily and want your face to have a smooth appearance, it is important to put moisturizer on or a foundation primer on before you put on your base. The cream or primer will actually fill your wrinkles in. If you fail to do this the base can accentuate any wrinkles or facial expression lines you have and make them look worse. The whole point of cosmetic makeup tips are to make you look better.
